1. Happy, happy bells are ringing,
Listen to their joyous lay,
Happy, happy voices singing,
Happy are the words they say,

Chorus:
Ring on, ring on, ye happy bells,
Ring out the joy your story tells,
Ring on, ring on, ye happy bells,
We love the lay your music tells.

2. Telling of a little stranger
Coming upon earth to dwell,
Cradled in a lowly manger;
We the story know so well. Chorus

Telling of a star in heaven,
Leading wise men on the way,
Telling of a Saviour given;
We can all the story say. Chorus
